a pretty girl is like a violent crime

...if you do it wrong you might do time
But if you do it right
it is sublime

  1. that little 30's dress is the sweetest.

  2. ooooo the 30s dress is divine!

  3. the 30's dress is lovely - but it's the pink & lime green saks dress that has my heart!

  4. There are at least 3 pieces in this shop preview that I want to get into my closet! That pink and green number is awesome!

  5. I love the mustard cardi - but then I am wearing one just like it! And that black cocktail dress is something else!!

  6. Ooh I LOVE the spots/stripes frock and the windowpane frock. The pink and green and the yellow cardi also call my name...
